Friday Eye Candy

Today was a Good Mail Day. A little square box arrived. And I saw it was from Mielke's Fiber Arts: the aptly named Bag of Candy! I thought it looked awfully small. And then I opened it.

WOW! Goodies for my book. :)

Look at those colors!

The Star Trek geek in me thinks they look like punk tribbles.

::drool::

Who would have thought so much could fit in such a small box?

I think I'll go fondle it now. :)

Rosemary- If I remember correctly, Tribbles breed like crazy, so you may want to separate them.

Ah, the trouble with tribbles, one of my favorite tv memories from my childhood. These tribbles look even nicer -- I bet the Star Trek ones were largely synthetic, it being the late 60s and all.

Gorgeous!

If they breed like smooth-coated Tribbles, will you be sharing? ;^)

Can you imagine how much fiber you'd have if they were tribbles? You'd never ever run out. You'd probably suffocate actually, no matter how fast a spinner or felter or whatever you were.

It looks like you're gonna be having some fun soon.

The Trouble with Tribbles is that they are so cute you just have to have more...but if I remember correctly, they propagate faster than rabbits! Soon, you will be up to your, er, neck in cute Tribbles.

Gorgeous colors. Thanks for the eye candy.
